How to Choose Dental & Surgical Loupes
When evaluating a loupe, please consider the following:

  • Quality of the Optics
  • Quality of the Frame
  • Magnification Required
  • Light Transmission
  • Depth of Field
  • Field of View
  • Working Distance
  • Flip-Up loupes versus TTL loupes
  • Comfortable Fit
  • Guarantee and Warranty

    Quality of Optics The best method to evaluate loupes' optic quality is to look at an object with straight
    black lines. The most common signs of poor quality optics are low resolution as shown in figure A,
    and image distortion as shown in figure B. When viewing through high quality loupes all lines will
    appear straight and clear, as shown in figure C.

    Quality of Frame can be determined by look at the material of the frame and tightness of all the

    Magnification requirements are determined by the type of tasks you perform while wearing your
    loupes. If you are dental hygienist, you might only need a 2.5x magnification loupe system. But if you
    perform surgical tasks like root canal procedures, then you need a loupe system of 4.0x magnification
    or more.

    Light Transmission is important not only for quality of the image, but also for the comfort and
    safety of your patients. Optimized light transmission means that you can work with less light, reducing
    your eyestrain while minimizing the exposure of your patient to bright light.

    Depth of Field is defined as the range of distance that is in focus without moving your head. The
    ergonomic benefits of a large depth of field are clear because there is less need to move your back,
    neck and head to work effectively.

    Field of View refers to the amount of the original object that you can see from left to right and top to
    bottom. Different applications have different needs. A larger field of view is not always the better choice.
    for instance, an endodontist might prefer to see only the small area being treated, whereas a
    periodontist would like to see as much of the surrounding area as possible.

    Working Distance requirements varies by the user's height and body type, and also by how you
    sit or stand while work with your patients. The best method of determining your working distance is to
    measure the distance between your eyes and the patient’s teeth, while sitting or standing in an
    ergonomic position in your normal workspace.

    TTL vs Flip Up
    TTL stands for "Through The Lens", It means that the loupes are glued to your lens. Although TTL is
    slightly lighter than Flip-Up system, it can not be moved from line of vision and the user can not make
    adjustments to the angle of declination to accommodate for the patient's position. And since each pair
    of TTL loupes is custom made, it is much more expensive than the Flip-Up loupes.

    Comfort of Use is determined by the weight of the whole system and the ergonomic design of the
    frame. Our frames are made from titanium, one of the lightest and toughest material used for high end
    glasses which will ensure the ultimate comfort for long periods of usage.
